Just a question to some other fellow anglers. I went out to my house yesterday after the vikings fiasco and found that i have new neighbors. now thats not a problem, although its a biggg lake and 15 feet was a little close. the problem is all the garbage they left on the ice. Pop cans, wood blocks, napkins, paper towels and "something" in a plastic bag. do I : pick up their garbage and say nothing or give the friendly game warden a call. they moved their house, but with the new snow it wasn't real hard to track them down... frown.gif

I would simply bag of the trash, follow the tracks to their new location, leave the trash with a little note about packing out what you pack in. I dont think the CO could really do anything about it. I'm constantly frustrated by the trash I find at my fishing holes...summer and winter. I usually pick up what I can and go on about my business. It's a shame that people dont already have the "leave it better than you found it" mentality. They are obviously not to ethically oriented seeing is how close they set up to you. some people's kids! Good luck out there.

ah, garbage.....another one of those problems that make the human race look like a bunch of (Contact US Regarding This Word). I would have zero problem dragging a bag full of "their" garbage over to their house with a little note.

Last June my crew and I went to Kabetogama and camped on an island. When we got to the camp site, the fire pit was full of cans, glass broken on the ground, etc. We picked everything up and put the stuff in our trash bag. About a half hour later, the forest service guys showed up (young fellas...summer college job). They said they had heard that this particular camp site was pretty dirty. Of course, we had everything cleaned up by the time they arrived, so they had nothing to clean up. So, they sat there with us and visited for a good hour, I bet. The greatest thing is that I got the young skipper to take me for a ride in the forest service boat. It was pretty cool of him to take me out. Those boats are built like a brick you-know-what! I take my hat off to those guys. They must see a lot of people who are disgusting. They could have very easily been not so friendly, but quite the contrary. It was a pleasure. We live by the rule to leave your area better than it was when we came. We want it to look like nobody has been there.

The neighbors were at it again in the not so distant past...Went out to the house Sunday before the Vikings (yea, yea) and they had decorated the snowbanks with budweiser cans again. Its bad enough they have to litter, but drinking bud...you've got to have some self respect. This time I had the digital camera along and took pictures. It had better not happen again or Mr. Campbell will get some pictures for evidence. By the way fishing sucked. frown.gif

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
